    Your Jobs (Not archery related)

    Sorry i'm putting this up in this section, but i thought i get more voices if i asked this in this section. I'm 19 and a freshman in college and trying to come up with some ideas for a career in my local area. I'm thinking counseling or a health care type job, but open to other ideas. Thanks.

    What do you guys do? Do you like it? etc.

    The health care industry is a good choice, I'd go for something like an X-ray tech, or MRI tech if I had to do it all over again. I spent almost 20yrs as an EMT/Firefighter.

    Pick what you are passionate about.

    I am currently a City Manager and i am happy although it is very political and with the economy how it is right now not sure i would go into it again. I was a health Planner for a tribal community and while the health industry remains uncertain with pending healthcare reform in whatever shape that may take i strongly suggest you go with something healthcare orientated simply because with the pending global economic collapse around the corner there will always be a lot more stability in healthcare than any other filed.

    Good luck to you whatever you choose.

    I am a teacher but with all the changes in our state and at the national level I would not recommend it to someone who is on the fence.

    I was a paramedic for 12 years and would not recomend that. If you want to go into the medical field I would look at nuclear medicine, such as a Nuclear Med Tech. If you want to do it right you should strongly look into being a dentist or optometrist.

    Network Engineer for Cisco Systems.. Great job if you like this kind of stuff but if you for one second get frustrated with math, people skills, computers/servers, applications, voice etc do not go into the IT field. If you do dig this kind of thing and like networking or service provider aspects of IT the first thing would be to work toward getting your CCIE. Which will help you work toward what you want out of a job and open doors. Personally for me I have the dream job that everyone I talk to wants without the headaches of owning my own business which I have in the past after getting out of the army. It will take time, dedication, endless studies but the rewards are well worth it day in an day out.

    I'm a medical machinist. I help make all the parts the doctors use to cut you open and replace defective joints. Been doing it for 14 years now and I absolutley love it. I made my late grandmothers knees from cutting the raw material to machining it completely then to packing it up and shipping it out the door. That way if it was bad she could beat my butt again....lol. Fortunately she never had a single problem and she lived another 7 years after her knee surgeries. I miss her and grandpa every single day!!!
